Testimonials Ksenija, Marketing Coordinator, ESCP Europe Business School. October 2011 ‘I started working with the Big Choice Group in 2009 and since then they have proved to be an effective online solution to promoting our programmes. Targeted emails always have strong and immediate results and our recent activity on Just Courses website, despite a short period of time, has generated a positive response. Working with the team at the Big Choice has always been a great experience – they are professional, proactive, friendly and flexible. Thank you so much!’ Emma, Client Relationship Director, MJD Consultancy November 2011 ‘MJD has been working with the Big Choice group on a number of campaigns, and your products have become an integral part of planning our media activity. Working closely with Gurpreet has been fantastic, she is super efficient and really knows her products inside out - explaining how we can work together without any unnecessary sales waffle. Its great to be able to build friendly and productive relationships with such nice people and Gurpreet is a great ambassador for the Big WWW.BIGCHOICEGROUP.COM Choice group. I would definitely recommend working with you to other clients and well be continuing to include you products in our campaign activity.’EDUCATION SPEACIALISTS Gillian Radcliffe, Marketing Manager, London College of Communications (University of the Arts) September 2011 ‘Jane, we had a good number of people sign up for the early bird clearing sessions so far from our JustCourses.com email campaign & we feel it was a good return on the modest amount we spent with you.
